Cascading drop downs and data population

I have been working with cascading drop downs with my Nintex form. Still new to the overall Nintex process, so learning along the way. I have researched through the group’s portal, specifically connecting with about 8-9 posts but can’t find exactly what I need help with. They each provide a piece to the solution but need help to get past the finish line.


Simplistically I have the cascading drop downs as this: first drop down has a list of Auto makers: Chevrolet, Ford, Dodge, Toyota and the second drop down are Auto Models based on the selection of the first drop down. So if one selects Toyota, the selections would be: Tundra, Sequoia, Prius, Camry, Celica and so forth.


The cascading drop downs connect to lookups, the first drop down has the list of auto makers and the other list has the models and auto makers.


What I need help with is this....I need to populate the answer to both drop downs into an email that I have generated from a workflow. Currently I can populate the answer to the first drop down, but am unable to get the answer to the second drop down to populate. I have tried several different ways, but the Auto Model answer will not populate from this second drop down.


Does anyone have an thoughts? I hope there is a solution within the tool outside of custom JS code as I don't have access to this.
